Money and Ministry

Winter 2015

This issue addresses such questions as: What does the Bible teach about wealth and stewardship? Will believing in Jesus Christ make us rich? Once wealth is acquired, how should Christians use it? Why has giving decreased, and what practical steps can Christian leaders take to help reverse this trend? In tight times, what are best practices for stretching ministry dollars? Because helping the poor is a core moral obligation for Christians and churches, what are some proven ways of helping the poor that do more good than harm? We explore these and many other stewardship-related topics in the forthcoming pages of this issue.
